Also to know is, how do you treat box blight?
How to use fungicides to manage box blight effectively:
- Apply prior to cutting out infected areas to minimise spread of live box blight spores.
- Apply after cutting at, and adjacent to, sites of infection to clear up latent infections and protect new and uninfected growth.
Beside above, why is my English box hedge going brown? JANE: Box Hedge leaves can turn orangey-brown because of high soil acidity (often caused by a build-up of added fertiliser) which locks up the nutrients. To fix this, apply dolomite lime to raise the soil pH. The soil nutrients will be released and the leaves will go back to a nice glossy green.
Similarly, you may ask, why is my box plant going brown?
When the leaves take on distinctive yellow tips or an orange or bronze colouration, it suggests the plants are under environmental stress. Many shrubs can suffer brown leaves. Trying to diagnose the problem as soon as possible may help save the plant.
Can you cure blight?
Blight spreads by fungal spores that are carried by insects, wind, water and animals from infected plants, and then deposited on soil. While there is no cure for blight on plants or in the soil, 2 there are some simple ways to control this disease.
